My kinetic typograpgy post:
Making Kinetic Typography is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. Choose a quote, a line, a sentence, or even a poem that speaks to you. Then go to Powerpoint (or Adobe), paste the passage and play around with the fonts, the colors of the text, the size of the letters, and the animations. Choose animations that matches the meaning of the word you are working on. For example, if you have a line that says,"go to your right", it would make the most sense to animate the word "right" to go right! Just like regular Typography, fonts, colors, size, contrast, and space will make your passage effective as well.
